served style of artwork that is primarily used for the creation of video games, movies, fashion and industry. it is drawn on computers, photoshop, corel painter and thus, l is not a hard copy of it. what we have done is put an array of monitors that can slide show and show this artwork which is very eye catching and i think that it speaks to a lot of people in the san francisco area that are involved in you know creation of these video games, movies, high-tech and we are hoping to serve that market by having a interesting area where creative professionals can come and enjoy this artwork and relax with a glass of wine or a cold beer or a cup of coffee. and that is just the basic overview of our venue. and we are getting a good response from neighborhood and they are looking forward to us opening from everyone that we have heard and we just hope to move forward. >> a quick question, have you reached out to the district supervisor? >> we have not, spoken with her directly, accept for the letters that we sent. >> if you could speak into the mic. >> we have not spoken with our superv

, the techniques we used as union organizers came from his father, fred roth. that contribution is huge was of the work that he did bring science to how we organize. that's actually changed the nation. that's the impact that fred roth senior has had on the world and i just want to all be here in your presence. thank you. (applause) >> thank you. i don't want to repeat what's been said. but, you know, i was meeting with dolores huerta just a couple days ago and i was really surprised that someone like her would be supporting our effort to add harvey milk's name to the airport. (applause) >> what she talked to me about was how she learned about the enter connection of every human being and that every cause for justice and equality is one that concerns all of us regardless of where you come from and where you are. * and i think that's the lesson, that people like dolores learned from your father. not only did he influence leaders like dolores and cesar chavez, but to this day, after years of his passing, influencing so many generations, it's really a legacy that will last forever. and just
. >> that leaves us the two remaining items in the richmond district and does anyone know how richmond stands on this? >> i will be speaking on behalf of officer tobe moore. >> and before you do. let me officially call the items they are two separate items. let's go back to 6 e, malik aslam dba jack in the box, 4649 geary, extended hours permit amply indication. application. >> it is located at geary and 11th avenue. this issue, this location came before the commission on january 24th, 2012. and then, after a process that involved a lot of community groups, the supervisor's office, residents, sfpd and the owner of the commission, granted an extended hours and permit with conditions. one condition approved operating hours between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.. but not after 4:00 or before 6:00. now after a year of operation, the operator has returned to ask full permission to operate between 4 and 6. operation at those hours will allow the venue to serve breakfast and i will let sfpd and the applicant take it from here. >> thank you. >> welcome. >> good evening commissioners. >> my name is art briden and
and the establishment was in district six during a redistricting process, they swiped us away and so any way, i want to point out that we did write a letter of support, but i also want to point out that they did no out reach. so, if you are shaming everybody for not doing the out reach, it starts here too. when they posted it was not clear, if it was st francis hotel or if it was st francis hotel asking for a liquor license or a different entity, it was not until we get the packet for this meeting that we realized that it is actually an entity that has because they did not do the out reach to the community. and so we thought that it was the hotel opening up a bar, under its name. and in reality, it is a chain of bars that are opening up and they want to open up at this location. and we do agree with the conditions that are set out by the police department. but, again p the issue of out reach, i think that it should be pointed out that you know, these applicants need to do the community out reach so that everybody, and just assume that there is no organizations or no residents and all of that, well t
